Jan. 1st progress on ATS

Hello!
I was so excited to start "And They Sinned" on the 1st of 2008. But I did wait till then to start it. I managed to get 3 finishes done in the last couple weeks of 2007, before I started ATS. I stitched all day from 9am to 10:30 pm with only a few short breaks. I am stitching on 36ct Edinburgh Flax with GAST 1 over 2. I am very proud of how much of a good start I got, believe me I will probably never get that many stitches in a day again.
I hope you dont get bored of seeing this one all year.
I didnt stitch yesterday, I was playing the role of a domestic goddess, lol.
Today kellie and I went shopping and out to lunch before the school holiday is over. Brianna comes tomorrow.
I was browsing online and have seen a few things I like, Jingle All The Way by Notforgotten Farms and Autumn in the Square by Just Nan, the buttons are so cool that go with the four season charts.
It was bitterly cold the last couple of days. I did get out to my feeders. Sew!! I will leave you with a couple of photos from my backyard feeders.

Happy Stitching!!!

Ranae ~ Oh, your start on ATS is wonderful. I am jealous though. I've had that design all kitted up for over a year, but just don't have the time to start on THAT one right now. Too many things to stitch and too little time. Have a great day ;)

Great start Ranae!!!! That's a good day of stitching ;o) I won't get bored of seeing yours all year if you promise you won't get bored of seeing mine. LOL! I look forward to seeing this piece progress.

Your bird pictures are wonderful and the cardinal is so vibrant! What kind of woodpecker is that one?

Love your new start!! I'm like you - I haven't set any goals for the new year! I change my mind about what I want to stitch too often!! Your snowman pillow is adorable and a great way to end 2007! Have a great day!

I love your start on ATS! I have wanted to get that one for some time now, maybe watching your progress will motivate me to do so. I won't get tired of seeing progress.

Is that a red headed woodpecker in the second photo of birds?

Lili said...

Great start on ATS! I love it!!!
The bird feeders look great, how sweet to think of our friends! My dad (lives in the country, not us...) also feeds the birds and it's such fun to watch them...
Domestic Goddess is my least favourite role. Lol!!! Yes, it distracts me from my stitching too. Not cool...
Take care!
Lili

Your start looks great! I love this pattern but hate to start with so many other irons in the fire.

Like the new start and the Cardinals. WE get one or two a year and maybe if lucky we see some blue birds too.
